Q:

Where can I get a bank loan for a 17-year-old?

A:

Quick Answer

Full Answer

Minors do not have any credit built up, so when they become legal adults, they still may have trouble obtaining loans without a co-signer. In order to help a minor child build up some type of credit, there are many banks and financial institutions that have accounts designed specifically for teenagers, reports DoughRoller. These accounts help teach children how to manage money efficiently.
